The Firm

With many offices around the world, the firm has seen rapid expansion over the years in terms of the size and geography and is noted as one of the most adept and key powerhouses in the sectors they operate. They are incredibly highly regarded within the transport and energy sectors.

Their global footprint includes offices in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia and North America and delivers consistently high levels of service across borders and locally through a deep understanding of their markets and sectors.

Although they are one of the leading International and UK firms, they have never lost their positive culture and have received many Employer, Development and Investor accolades, notably being named in Top Employer for Women awards a record-breaking number of times.

This firm attracts key individuals from US, City and International firms, which could be attributed to so many factors. Often, it is the culture and genuine opportunities to progress that attracts top lawyers to this firm.
